After the traditional M382, Jean Rondeau built a much bolder car in 1982, the M482. The chassis had very pronounced Venturi tunnels and the particularly careful aerodynamics were studied by Max Sardou, who had also collaborated with March and Lola. One of the M482's most notable problems was the installation of the 3.9-litre Ford Cosworth DFL engine, which suffered from too much vibration and lacked reliability. The M482 project put Rondeau's finances in serious crisis and it was the last sports car produced by the Le Mans manufacturer.

Of the three Rondeau M482s entered in the 1983 24 Hours of Le Mans, number 25 was driven by Jean-Pierre Jaussaud, winner of the race in 1978 and 1980, and Philippe Streiff. The car had to retire quite early (third hour) due to engine failure, the same fate as the other two M482s.

SPARK-MODEL

In the history of static modeling, Spark has truly revolutionized the market. The brand was created by Hugues Ripert, whose father André had been one of the main contenders of the artisanal modeling scene in the 70s and 80s. After working for Vitesse, Quartzo and Ixo, Ripert jr did not choose the diecast technique but opted for resin, with production in China but development and conception strictly in the European tradition. In practice the idea was to offer special models built in small series (what were later called "resincast"). The first Sparks were released in 2000, with a quality-price ratio unapproachable for most industrial and artisanal producers. Today Spark continues to churn out dozens of new products a year, having also expanded its production to other scales, such as 1:18 but also 1:64. There are numerous numbered and limited series for the various national distributors and for private customers such as teams, sponsors, drivers and so on.
